The LXi T-Pac's are designed to offer top performance, coupled with easy transportation for anglers who travel a lot and the very popular 11’6” Switch rods have now been remodelled, redeveloped and launched as multi-piece rods. This extra section hasn't affected the superb performance of these rods in a negative way, but merely made them transportable inside your checked luggage for that trip overseas
These rods are configured with hybrid front handles that work very well both as single hand and double-hand grip. The short back handle gives a good, secure hold for double hand casting and at the same time, it is small enough not to interfere with your single hand casting.
The lightweight Recoil single leg and stripper guides help the rod action and creates a nice, tip light and crisp feeling in the blank. These rods have a relatively stiff tip that can handle both standard Scandi heads and heavier Skagit type heads equally well. They are powerful and you will be surprised at the length of the cast you can power out with these rods.
The 6/7 weight rod makes a great tool for Brown Trout or fishing for smaller grilse sized Salmon. The 7/8 weight rod is very useful as an allrounder for both larger, migratory Browns and for Sea Trout and medium sized Salmon. This rod loves a Compact 7/8 line set up. The 8/9 weight rod is powerful and handles Scandi lines in weights from 21 grams and performs superb with a 24 gram Scandi or Multi Tip Switch line. For short Skagit heads, weights up around the 20-22 gram/320-350 grains mark + tip are a great option.
2016 has seen the launch by adding an 11’6 #9/10 “Big Fish Stick” into the range.
Just like their cousins the LXI double-hand rods, the new LXI Switch range is the next step in evolution from the wildly popular LeCie.
The LXI Switch range all measure in at 11ft6in long a truly versatile range of rods for those scenarios when you just need to go lighter!
